PostSubject: Wedding Bells Are Gonna Ring   Mon Feb 11, 2013 12:44 am

    I came in after talking to Pops and the priest. Everything was good to go. We just had to get them married. Shutting the door behind me, I turned to see Dante standing in front of the mirror. "Dude, you look perfect. And Bianca is going to look perfect." Coming up around in front of him, I asked, only one more time, "Are you ready for this?"

I thought I'd be nervous. I mean I was getting married. A life long commitment to a woman. Something I NEVER thought I'd do.. and yet. I didn't feel nervous at all. It just felt.. right. Like breathing. So when Jackson asked all I did was smile. "I've never been more ready for something in my entire life." I said fidgeting with my tie to make sure it was perfect. "I love this woman and spending my life with her is all I want. Now stop asking." I said laughing.

    Laughing in return, I patted him on the back and smiled. "Good, man! I'm just glad you're as happy as I am." I smiled, turning to straighten his tie. "You look almost as good as I did when I got married, little brother. Almost, not quite."

"You mean I look better?" I asked, playfully shoving him as I laughed. "Because I know I look better than you." I looked in the mirror. "Life can only go up from here."

    Stepping aside, I looked back at him. "You're right, brother. Marrying Abigail was the smartest thing I ever did. I know we're young, but when you know, you know, you know?"

"Yep," I said, turning to Jackson. "Okay, big brother.. let's get out there and wait for my beautiful bride."

    Patting his back, I turned with him toward the door. "Not nervous at all?" Alright, so I was letting it go on a little too much. "Hey, man, I just wanted to tell you... I... she's not as horrible as I was thinking. I can tell you love her, and I can see she loves you too. That's all that matters. I'm really happy for you, brother. I really am."

If I had to tell him one more time I wasn't nervous I was going to smack him.. because he wasn't getting it. But then he was nice and made me smile instead of bashing his head in the door. "Thanks. Abby ain't so ice queen like either.. and she makes you happy.. so.. yeah.." I said, as we walked down the hall and moved toward the chapel.

    I laughed, only shortly. Did we really just agree that our wives were good for the other. Hey, it was good for us. For guys who didn't let anyone come between the two of them, to let two women into their lives was a big deal, something neither of us thought we would ever do, but now in a matter of moments, we were both going to be married, and neither of us could be happier. Abby's dad was sitting with Bianca's mom who was healing really well from almost dying. I didn't know where Pops and Momma and Aunt Tammy were, but they weren't around and neither were the priest. I hoped nothing was wrong. I didn't want anything to ruin Dante's day. I turned to him, smiling, hoping he didn't see my nervousness. "Girls always have to take their sweet time, don't they?"

I chuckled lightly. "They sure do, huh?" I said, looking down at the end of the aisle, wondering where the hell Bianca was.

    I looked up to see Pops coming down the isle. Momma and Auntie Chelle weren't with him, but he looked ... the way I felt, times ten. Coming up to us, he rubbed the back of his neck, speaking quietly. "Dante, can you come with me, son? We need to talk..." Something happened. I didn't know what, but it wasn't good. Pops looked pale, his usual paleness whenever he had to tell us something serious... like when he and Auntie Tammy told us they were together...

I just sat there. "No, Bianca's coming soon. It can wait." I said, waving Pops off. "Go sit and enjoy the wedding." I looked around him for Bianca.

    Pops took a step closer, shaking his head. "She's not in the vestibule, Dante. She's gone." Pops never was one to keep something inside. If he had to say something, he just said it. "What?" I shook my head. "That's bullshit. Abigail!" I called for her, even though I knew she couldn't hear me from here. "She's here. Abby will know where she is," I told Dante, nodding to him. "You want me to go see?" Not that Dante worried about that "seeing the bride before the wedding" thing. I mean, we'd spent the morning together. He'd slept with her last night. He wasn't worried about that, but I thought I'd offer myself anyway.

"No," I said, pushing past Pops and Jackson. I walked back toward the bridal suite and pushed the door open. "Bianca?" I asked, seeing that not only was she gone but so was her dress.. and Abby. "Bianca!" I said, turning and walking out and walking down the hall. "Bianca!" She wouldn't leave. She just wouldn't!

    I had followed Dante to the room to find Abigail missing too. Something wasn't right. "Dante?" I called after him and following. I stepped on something and stopped, looking down to see ... I leaned down to pick it up, making sure it was what I thought it was. "Abby..." I closed my hand tightly around it and ran after my brother. "Dante!"

"Bianca!" I yelled again, moving out toward the parking lot. "Bianca!" I screamed, feeling my chest grow heavy. "Where is she.. she wouldn't.. she couldn't... she.." I punched my hand as hard as I could against a car window and cracked the glass, bloodying up my fingers and breaking all of them I'm sure. But that pain didn't hurt nearly as bad as the pain in my chest. "Where is she!" I screamed.

    I came up to Dante, seeing his hand and inhaling deeply. I understood how he felt. I'd flip out if Abby had left on our wedding day, but Abigail was gone too. Wouldn't Bianca had left on her own if she had gotten cold feet? I still didn't understand why Abby's necklace had been in the hall. I knew she'd never take this off. Why would she? "I don't know, Dante! I don't know! But Abby's gone too. I'll call her, ok? I'll call her." I took my phone from my pocket and called her. Her phone was off and it went straight to voice mail. "Hey, baby. It's me. Where are you? Did you run after Bianca? She's gone. Where are you?" Sighing, I shook my head. "Come on, man. We'll find them. They couldn't have gone far. We can take my car." Abby hadn't taken it, so that meant they were walking wherever they had gone, so they really hadn't gone far.

"No," I growled. "She made her choice. I'm not chasing after her. I refuse!" I yanked the tie off and tossed it before walking away. "I need the first place to get a drink I can find."

    I followed after him, taking a deep breath. It's exactly what I'd do if I were in his shoes, but I knew something was off. I knew it. I don't know how I knew, but I knew it. "Hey, listen! You know me. I haven't always been on the Bianca Bandwagon, but I can see how much she loves you. How much she wants to be with you. Dude, she gave you a mangy mutt for fuck's sake. That's love, and I'm not saying puppy love either." Alright, so now wasn't the time to be funny, but I wasn't able to help myself. "Come on. Seriously, Dante. Something is wrong here. She wouldn't just leave and Abigail wouldn't NOT answer her phone. Trust me on this."

"She sure would leave! And she sure would take Abigail with her so she can cry and act like I hurt her! Just like last time when she said no to me! It's this all over again! And I bet Bianca begged her not to answer! That's it!" I said, walking down the street, tossing the jacket down. "She's off running like she always does when shit gets too serious for her!"

    I kept up with him, but I had to take a step back, mentally anyway, and realize that if this happened to me, I'd be feeling the exact same way. I'd be heading for the nearest bar, just so that I could numb the pain I was feeling. So, I wasn't going to try to convince him of anything else. I was sure Pops was taking care of it because he knew Dante wouldn't. He knew us better than almost anyone because we were mirror images of him. He knew us because he's been there, done that, so to speak. So, I was going to do what any brother should do and stand by him. "Alright, brother. Let's go get drunk. Let's go drink until we're passed out and there's nothing more to care about." I knew I should be out there looking for Abigail, but I didn't have any clue where the look. The most obvious of places would be Castellano's house, and because it's the most obvious, I knew that's exactly where she wouldn't be. So, I had no clue where to even begin. The only thing I could do right now is drown myself, thinking about all the horrible things that could be happening. Castellano was a dick, but I knew he wouldn't kill them. He was too old fashioned. Then it hit me, even as I was thinking it, that's exactly where they were. With Castellano. Why it didn't hit me before, even though the idea had been in the back of my mind, I didn't know. He had them. And I was sure that Pops knew it too. He was going to find them. I should be with him, but I knew he'd just tell me to take care of Dante, so that's where I was, taking care of my brother. Taking out my phone, I sent Aunt Tammy a text. Pops didn't have a phone, so I sent it to Tammy, knowing she'd get it to him. Castellano has them. I was sure Pops knew, but I wanted us all to be on the same page. He'd keep me posted as well.

I came to the first bar and sat. At first the bartender refused but when I tossed my credit card at him and said he could have a thousand dollar tip to shut the fuck up and give me my drink he gave it over and I downed one quickly. How could she just leave? Did she not love me the way I loved her? Was her fear really THAT important? "She left.." I mumbled, downing another shot. "I should've never taken her back."

    Usually, I'd be the first to agree with him, but after all that Abby has ever said about the two of them, after what I saw from her today, yeah, I could tell she loved him. I believe she hadn't left him, not by choice anyway. Abby wouldn't let her do that. I knew my wife. "Love makes us do things we never thought we'd do, brother." I ordered myself a water. I may take something hard in a little while, but as for now, water was all I wanted. I wasn't the one who was mad here.

"Guess so." I said downing another shot. "It sure as hell hurts you, burns you.. makes you weak.. I'm never falling in love again!"

    There was no need to argue with him on that one. I knew he was as much in love with Bianca as I was with Abigail. He wouldn't be falling in love again because he was already so completely and utterly in love. "Love makes us better people. It makes us stronger people. But you're right, it hurts and it burns." I asked the bartender to fill myself up a glass. I was really starting to worry about Abigail. Castellano had her, and after all I've done to screw him over myself, I was still sure he wouldn't hurt her. She's a woman. You don't hurt women and children in this job... But then again, he'd hurt Dante and Tammy the whole time Dante's been growing up. Letting the liquid coarse down my throat, I prayed that Abigail was safe. But you know what? No. I'm not going to just sit back and let Pops take care of everything. "Actually, you know what, Dante. She didn't leave you. I know she didn't leave you, and I know because Abigail wouldn't just leave without telling me shit. Let's go get them. Castellano's had them. You know he threatened to ruin your wedding day. Have faith in the woman you love, because you know what? She loves you too and the longer we wait to go get our wives, the more time he has to hurt them. The more of a chance he has to hurt our sons!"
